Travel Excitement!

I have been very sick!
Even now, 2 weeks after the first signs of illness, I'm still sick!
I went to the doctor on Wednesday, it's either pneumonia or asthma. They took blood and gave me lots of antibiotics. It's been 2 days, and I'm not feeling any better :(
The good thing about being sick is sick days. I have had some time to stay warm and catch up on some TV. I finally started Vikings, and I love it!!

I'm a little bit excited. Today mum and I are going to purchase our plane tickets to Sydney! We are going in July, and I'm very excited to be going to Sydney again, especially with mum!

I love travelling. I love planning to travel just as much as the travelling itself.
I love to write packing lists (which I've already started for this July trip) but even with all the planning, I still end up overpacking... and then having to pay extra when I come home (due to all the shopping) :(
I understand that being a fat girl, that my clothes take up more room, and one of my biggest stresses is, if I only take one pair of jeans... what happens if I rip a hole in the bum? I won't have any pants... but as I discovered on my Mini Adventure to Perth a couple weekends ago... I just wore the same clothes for all 3 days, AND the world didn't end!

I'm excited about taking my suitcase on holiday again! I bought it in 2010 before heading to Melbourne with my friend Tahlia (especially to see the MOMA Tim Burton Exhibition) and it's so bright, that I never lost it... even with several people "threatening" to steal it.
I added a few stickers, mostly to cover some scratches. I just love it! I also have my Crumpler backpack, which I will probably use as carry on, and in Perth I bought a smaller canvas pack back (that I can fold up and stick in my bigger back pack) So I think I'm all set for bags.

The next step is... clothing! The average July temperature in Sydney is 9-16 degrees Celsius, and in Katoomba (where we will be visiting) it's 2-9 degrees celsius! SO COLD!!!

LAYERS! Lots of layers! Last year when Alex and I were in Sydney at the end on July, it wasn't that cold... and it only rained a tiny bit... (It actually rained more in February 2012, when I first went to Sydney)
And Comfy shoes! so probably converses... they have never steered me wrong!

As the trip comes closer... you will be seeing lots of posts like this... about packing, and traveling and general anxiousness! I love traveling, it just stresses me out a little... because I can't control it :P

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.
If you have any travel tips, let me know in the comments :)
